This would add more depth to an already dense crop of talent, and increase the skill of teams league-wide.
While the '91 and '94 rosters really aren't that different, it would make things more familiar for some coaches who are new to the league as well.

Fedorov, Mogilny, Larionov, and other notable Russians are already members of NHL clubs in 1990-91, if anyone is wondering.

Here's the list of players that would be included:

This poll will determine the possible inclusion of Soviet players. For that reason votes that don't have a post from a coach will be discounted.

Wasn't Fetisov also among the active Russian players in the league that year?

I also vote yes. It'll be a challenge for the guys responsable for the road tour.

You know this season has a player draft, or am I misinterpreting? Won't be any Soviet teams in the league, just the players; no stairway to Lenin.

So then, we're gonna pick ALL players, even the Russians if the voting holds a positive result?

I thought it was gonna be old-school like last season. Son, I am dissapoint. >:lol:

Did you read the details in the season 2 topic?

This season will have a draft. The conventional 6 forwards, 4 defenseman, and 2 goalies deal.

No line changes this season. Primary reason being a draft would take too long, and I know some of last seasons coaches weren't enamored with line changes.

>

I'm considering letting players from the Russian National teams '91 super series into the draft pool

No Soviet teams would be available, just the players.

Yes, but I assumed we'd pick starters, like with Logan's auto tournaments.

Makarov was active i believe.

Yeah, Sergei was the oldest rookie to win the Calder in '89 with the Flames. Had a solid year in '91 too.

The Sergei Makarov on the list above is a defenseman from Moscow Krylya - Soviet Wings.

More flags more fun is how I see it.

But letting Russians out of the iron curtain we might have to eat frosted flakes with vodka instead of milk.

VODKA FLAKES.

Once the polls close the draft will begin.

In Soviet Russia, cereal eats you! And if it has alcohol, drunk makes you.

DA we should have more russians that way they don't run away and go to the KHL.

plus it gives us more choices from who to pick when we draft
